mississippi says he wants to make it illegal in the state to enforce any new federal gun laws. how many times have we had this debate? this time after the murders of the children in newtown, conn., the president tells us this is different. the president has signed 23 executive orders aimed at reducing gun violence and is urging congress to reinstate a ban on so-called assault weapons, limit the size on magazines, and mandate here are some background checks for all gun sales. he is also asking the public to put heat on members of congress. >> remembers of congress if they support universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. the response from the nra was immediate. >> is the president's kids more important than yours? why is he's skeptical about putting our security in his school's, when his daughters have arm together school? mr. obama demands of will to pay their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to his fair share of security. protection for his kids and gun- free zones for hours. -- for ours. >> at the white house, and j

colorado and mississippi where they come out and they say, "what we're really trying to do is create complete separation of eggs, embryos, and fetuses from the pregnant women, authorize the state to use that as an excuse to control pregnant women," people say, "no way." >> but in alabama, the state supreme court in alabama has interpreted the term "child" to apply to fertilized eggs and embryos. which means, doesn't it, that women can be prosecuted for endangering the fetuses? >> and that is what it does mean. and that's not -- what that was, and it's very interesting that you should raise that, that was judicial activism. and what they did was they judicially enacted a personhood measure. had they put it to a vote to the citizens, we trust that, like in mississippi, people in alabama would've voted it down. this is rank, judicial abuse of power. >> we've seen devastating cuts in state budgets on women's health issues across the country. most dramatically in my home state of texas, which is governed, as you probably know, by tea party republicans and the religious right. what are the

. i grew up in the southern baptist church with a lot of hunters. i lived in mississippi, we spent our summers in the woods. i can tell you, i grew up around hunters and guns and relatives that had shotguns in the back of their trucks and had guns in their houses and what stunned me was after newtown when i came out sighing enough is enough, the second amendment does not mean that survivalists have a right to carry around whatever assault weapon they want to carry around, i was shocked by the number of positive messages i got from the very conservatives, the hunters, the n.r.a. members, the southern baptists that i sat with in pews growing up that agreed with me 100%. i got a lot more response from conservatives, mainstream conservatives than i did even from liberals. so that's why i'm concerned about the republican party, whether they can really listen to wayne lapierre and follow the most extremist elements of the n.r.a. or whether they're going to listen to hunters and constituents in their own districts. >> rose: the n.r.a. represents gun owners or does it represent corporate i

we see, for example, personhood being introduced in mississippi and when the people have the actual opportunity to vote at that ballot box they vote no and ject it. we saw the abortion ban in south dakota twice defeated by the people. i think the thing here is that a politicians that are being elected are stealth. they don't run. they don't come to your door saying they're going to be run and be antichoice or going to restrict women's access. they come and talk to you about the economy and jobs. then they get there and people are finding that these laws are passed. many of which are outrageous and they don't accept. we saw that in virginia when there was outrage over the mandatory transvaginal ultrasound. womespontaneously showed up at e capital saying shop this nonsense >> ifill: your folks have said we're moving from talking about the baby to talking about the mother and talking about women. but if issues these personhood issues, these amendments and the transvaginal discussion that happened in virginia, how is that fit into your strategy? >> it's just funny for nancy to completel

excoriated over his criticism of pro-israel lobbying efforts, and mississippi republican roger wicker raised it again. >> you are here today as a you have suggested that there is an effective lobby out there, whether you call them the jewish lobby, the israeli lobby or the israel lobby, and that they succeed in doing dumb things through intimidation, and that u.s. policy has been the wrong approach because the intimidation has worked. >> i've already said, i regret referencing the jewish lobby. i should have said pro-israel lobby. i think it's the only time on the record that i've ever said that. on the use of intimidation, should have used influence, i think would have been more appropriate. i should not have said dumb or stupid, because i understand, appreciate there are different views in these things. >> reporter: south carolina republican lindsey graham argued that hagel's larger record on middle east policy is equally troubling. >> do you believe that the sum total of all of your votes, refusing to sign a letter to the e.u. asking hezbollah to be designated a terrorist or
